Does any one know which Eleanor Tobin married John Dinn on 27 Nov 1863? I see that there are 2 possibilities:

Eleanor Tobin bapt. 14 Jan 1839 daughter of Thomas Tobin and Anne Carew
Eleanor Tobin bapt. 4 Jan 1841 daughter of John Tobin and Bridget Madigan

Any help would be appreciated.

Chris

Chris, I'm thinking seriously this is Eleanor:

Newfoundland Vital Statistics Death Records Selected for the Ferryland District 1891 - 1935 Part 3
Date Place Cause Name Age Place of Birth Place of Burial
June 31, 1898 Witless Bay Consumption Dinn, Ellen 59 Witless Bay Witless Bay

**Would put her birth as 1839, right bracket.


Vital Records Register of Deaths Book 3 1898 - 1902 DISTRICT OF FERRYLAND Pages 460 - 471
DATE OF DEATH PLACE OF DEATH CAUSE OF DEATH SURNAME GIVEN NAME SEX RELIGION AGE PLACE OF BIRTH PLACE OF INTERMENT
Page 460
June 31[sic] Witless Bay Consumption DINN Ellen F R.Catholic 59 Witless Bay Witless Bay

I know she died before 1921 as John appears as a widower living with his son Thomas & family. From her marriage record, it appears Eleanor might have had a sister Mary.

TOBIN Mary Witless Bay 8-Jun 1842 Tobin, John Madigan, Bridget James Naile
Catherine Dauton Patrick Cleary


TOBIN Mary Anne Witless Bay 1-Mar 1849 Tobin, Thomas Carew, Anne William Tobin
Margaret Carew Patrick Cleary

Mary, d/o John & Bridget, would have been 19 at the time of Eleanor's marriage to John Dinn.
Mary Anne, d/o Thomas & Anne, would only have been 14 at the time of Eleanor's marriage.

Hi Trishe,
Makes sense that the best possibility is Thomas Tobin and Anne Carew, as you pointed out in the dates. Thanks for the input. I think that I'll start with that and if I find out something different later, I can just disconnect them and then reconnect the correct one. It's not like it would be the first time. :-)
